Along with honing his skills, Feather aspires to meet and train under the "Inquistor" Ghandagoza, the legendary martial artist and founder of the Eternal Rage Style. While journeying with the crew, he eventually meets the man face-to-face during the Grandsky Rumble. After exchanging a single blow to test Feather's skill, Ghandagoza decides not to take Feather under his wing; not because Feather was unworthy, but because passing on the Eternal Rage Style to him would only impede his growth. Ghandagoza's praise sends Feather's spirit soaring as he seeks even greater heights.
Feather can be somewhat simpleminded and his hot-blooded, combat-happy personality makes him jump to the wrong conclusions quite often, but underneath all that he's actually rather conscientious and caring. When Randall is mauled by a powerful monster, Feather flies into a rage and attacks it to take revenge. After the Main Character asks him to dress up for the Halloween party and come up with a plan to make it "spooktacular," Feather puts his all into it—at least in recruiting Jamil and Melissabelle to help, even if he doesn't do much thinking of his own.

Letting Fists Do the Talking
(Captain) is suddenly challenged to a fight by a mysterious young man named Feather. The captain declines, but the crew runs into Feather again while preparing to leave. When (Captain) refuses a second challenge, Feather insists on joining the crew.
(Captain) and the crew complete a village's request to clear out monsters.
They are heading back to the village when a young man suddenly blocks their path.
Vyrn: What's up? You need us for something?
???: Heh... I was watching you guys, and you sure seem to know what you're doing. You're pretty skilled for your age!
???: But I bet those pathetic monsters weren't enough for you, were they?
Lyria: Um... What are you talking about?
???: Oh, please... Don't bother trying to hide it.
???: You guys heard about the monsters that the village militia couldn't handle, and it got your hopes up, right?
???: But they weren't even enough for a warmup. Hardly a test of your strength, right? Pretty disappointing, I bet.
Vyrn: Hey now... That's not why we took the monster hunting req—
???: There's no need to hide it. I can tell how skilled you are.
???: And if I'm gonna make my dream a reality, I'll have to get even stronger.
Feather: So! Will you grant me, Feather, the honor of facing off against you in battle?
- I refuse.
Feather: Oh, I get it... You're one of them bashful types, aren't you?Choose: I refuse.
Feather: Oh, I get it... You wanna set a time and place, huh?Continue 1
Vyrn: What? No! How'd you manage to jump to that conclusion?
Lyria: Um, it seems (Captain) really doesn't have any intention of fighting you, so...
Feather: I see... Then I guess it's just not gonna happen!
Feather: I'm not about to force anyone to do anything, so I guess this is where we'll part ways.
Feather: Next time... assuming there is a next time... let's let our fists do the talking!
(Captain) and the crew watch as the young man turns on his heel and leaves.
Vyrn: What was that all about?
Lyria: Hmm... For now, let's just get back to the village, shall we, (Captain)?
Lyria: Um... This is the last of the luggage to be brought aboard the airship, right?
Vyrn: You guys hear that? Sounds like there's some kind of commotion outside the ship.
Feather: I hate to ask, but could you let me hide out on your airsh—Hey! It's you guys again!
Vyrn: Whoa! You're the guy from before!
Lyria: What's wrong? Is someone after you?
Feather: Well... After we talked, I went and accepted a request to locate a den of thieves, you see.
Feather: I went in alone to test my skills, but there were more of them than I expected...
Lyria: And now the thieves are after you, Feather?
Feather: Nah. They should still be passed out on the floor of their hideout.
Feather: It's just that... I may have broken a teensy little rule or two in the request, so now the village militia's after me.
Vyrn: Oh boy... Well done, genius.
Feather: Anyway, I didn't think I'd run into you again, (Captain)!
Feather: This must be fate! The stars have aligned so that we can duke it out!
Feather: All right, bring it on!
Lyria: Stop it! (Captain) already said no!
Feather: I see... So your mind is set, huh? I guess that's part of what makes you so strong.
Feather: But I won't give up! Once I decide on something, I'll keep going at it!
Vyrn: Wait a minute! Don't tell me you...
Feather: From what I can tell, you're a skyfarer, aren't you, (Captain)?
Feather: Allow me to join you on your journey across the skies! At least until the day we can finally duke it out!
Lyria: Um... What should we do about this, (Captain)?
Choose: You're in, big guy.
- You're in, big guy.
- I'm never going to fight you.
Feather: Oh? That was easier than I thought.
Feather: Since you're feeling so generous, why not just fight me n—
Vyrn: Hey! Just drop it already, will you?Choose: I'm never going to fight you.
Feather: I guess there's no way around it, huh? I'll give up on it for now.
Feather: Besides, my goal is to become stronger than anyone else.
Feather: And I'm definitely gonna get stronger if I travel with you! I just know it!Continue 2
Lyria: T-that's great and all, but shouldn't we take off before the village militia gets here?
Feather: Whoops, I nearly forgot! Well then, let's be off!
(Captain) and the crew practically trip over each other in their rush to set sail.
After making Feather promise not to randomly challenge everyone he sees, they continue on their journey.
The crew arrives at a village in response to a monster hunting request. After hearing that an imperial soldier is pillaging the village, Feather decides that they should go punish the scoundrel.
After receiving a request to hunt some monsters, (Captain) and the crew arrive at a village.
The village is dark and gloomy. A dejected villager comes to talk to the crew.
Villager: Are you the skyfarers that have come to hunt the monsters?
Feather: You aren't looking too happy there.
Feather: Don't you worry. (Captain) and I are gonna beat those monsters down at lightning speed.
Villager: The thing is... the monsters aren't our only problem.
Vyrn: What! An imperial soldier, you say?
Feather: A pillaging soldier... Sounds like a worthy opponent!
Feather: How about it, (Captain)? Why don't we go punish that soldier ourselves?
Lyria: Sounds good! We can't just leave the villagers to suffer!
Feather: Then it's decided! Let's head out right away! My knuckles are itchin' for collision!
Spirit Fist: Scene 2
Feather tries a diplomatic approach, but this only angers the imperial soldier. Insisting that a full-out brawl is the best way to come to an understanding, Feather decides to talk it out with his fists.
Imperial Soldier: Hey! Who are you? Did the villagers hire you to come after me?
Feather: Nope. We're just some passing skyfarers, which means we're heroes of justice!
Vyrn: No, we're not! Although we don't exactly let the bad guys get away either.
Feather: Anyway, you seem to be expecting some retaliation from the villagers.
Feather: Which means you know what you're doing is wrong.
Feather: So can you just cut it out? You're causing a ton of trouble for those poor villagers.
Imperial Soldier: Shut up! Who the hell do you think you are, kid?
Feather: Guess we won't be able to just talk it out, huh?
Vyrn: Ha! You should know that we aren't exactly known for going easy on our ene—
Feather: Yeah! It's boxing time!
Vyrn: Seriously? You want to duke it out? That's not the point here...
Feather: There's no quicker way to reach an understanding than through some mutual pummeling.
Feather: So let's do this! Your fists can start the negotiation... and my fists will scream straight to your heart!
Spirit Fist: Scene 3
Feather inspires a change of heart in the soldier, and reveals that he is chasing after a certain role model. He shares his dream of someday reaching an understanding with primal beasts through his fists.
Feather: Heh... There's something blazing in that chest of yours.
Feather: I could feel it... Your fists told me everything I needed to know.
Imperial Soldier: Wow... You're really something else. You really shook me awake there.
Imperial Soldier: I'm sorry about what I did. I'll return everything I took to the villagers.
Feather: Good. If you apologize sincerely, I'm sure the villagers will find it in their hearts to forgive you.
With the stolen items returned to the villagers as promised, peace is restored once again.
Vyrn: Seriously... Duking it out to reach an understanding. How reckless can you get?
Feather: I didn't come up with that on my own. I actually have a role model.
Feather: That person can fight anyone with a single fist, and reach a point of understanding with their opponents along the way.
Feather: I'll never be able to forget the way they fought. It's a constant inspiration to become stronger... to become just a little more like them.
Vyrn: So that's the dream you were talking about before!
Feather: Yeah. And one day, I'll fight primal beasts with just my fists and really have a heart-to-heart with them!
Vyrn: Uh... I think that might be impossible.
Feather swears upon his fists to achieve his grand dream.
He continues on his reckless journey to grow stronger so that, one day, he can come face-to-face with his role model.
No Holds Barred
Feather and Aliza compete to prove which is better, fists or feet. At the end of a long battle with no clear victor, they declare their respect for each other's fighting styles.
Lyria: Aah! Aliza!
Aliza: I'm not done yet! It's okay, Lyria! I just took a little tumble is all!
Feather: Ohoho... You're tougher than I thought!
Aliza: Hah! You better believe it! Let's go again!
Feather: You got it! These fists aren't finished yet!
Vyrn: Sigh... Where are they getting all this energy?
Aliza and Feather have been immersed in training since the Grandcypher landed on this island.
Feather: Whew... That's more like it. And here I was holding back!
Feather: Bring it on! Show me what you can do!
Aliza: Hehe! How long d'you think you can keep running your mouth?
Lyria: Wow... They're both amazing!
Vyrn: I guess it is amazing... I don't know if I could keep that sort of thing up every day myself...
Lyria: Maybe there's something about their fighting styles that gives them so much pep!
Lyria: Hey, (Captain)... Whose style do you like better?
Choose: Aliza's got some mighty fine footwork
- Aliza's got some mighty fine footwork
- Man, Feather has some furious fists
Feather: What! What's the meaning of this, (Captain)? I thought our fists spoke the same language!
Vyrn: You guys were listening?
Aliza: Wooow! You really know your stuff, (Captain)!
Aliza: Hehehe... There you have it! When it comes to footwork, you can't fight the phoenix!
Feather: No way! No foot can speak like a good fist! Maybe a mumble at best!
Aliza: What's that supposed to mean!Choose: Man, Feather has some furious fists
Aliza: Excuse me? I'm sorry, but I can't let that slide!
Lyria: Huh? How did you get over here so quickly?
Feather: Ohoho! I knew you had an eye for quality, (Captain)!
Aliza: Grr... Quality, my right horn! Feet'll beat fists any day of the week!
Feather: Them's fighting words, Aliza!Continue 1
Lyria: Oh dear... I have a bad feeling about this...
Vyrn: Geez... I can't figure out whether these two like each other or not...
Aliza: Hmph... I guess it's time to separate the wheat from the chaff once and for all, Feather.
Feather: Let's do this. If you can't talk it out with words, you should let your fists speak for you!
Feather: Let's hear what your fists have to say, Aliza!
Aliza: Hah! I think you meant to say feet!
Aliza: All right! You're about to see the techniques my family spent generations perfecting, up close and personal!
Feather: Whoo! Let's go! I'm hitting you with everything I've got!
Their battle cries threaten to rend the sky in two. Their duel shakes the very island.
Several hours pass.
Feather: Pant... Wheeze... You got yourself some... moves...
Aliza: Huff... Puff... Y-you... too...
In the end, they both collapse from exhaustion before a clear victor can be determined. The match is declared a tie.
Feather: Okay, I lose. Those Phoenix techniques are nothing to sneeze at.
Aliza: Thanks! I don't think I can move either though. You ought to register those fists as lethal weapons, Feather!
Feather: Heh... These fists are my pride and joy...
Lyria: Oh, good. They made up.
Lyria: Hehe... They had me really worried for a while there.
Vyrn: Yeesh... I just don't understand these martial arts nuts. Who knows what's going through their heads?
Feather: What? Vyrn, you still don't understand our passion?
Vyrn: Er, no... I mean, uh...
Feather: Oh, Vyrn... There's no deeper sorrow than to be misunderstood...
Feather: But I don't think you and I can duke it out...
Aliza: I got it! Vyrn, you can join us for some training!
Vyrn: What? When did we start talking about training?
Feather: I get it... What a great idea! And there's no time like the present!
Aliza: You need to get the basics down first! We'll start with sprints! Ready, Vyrn?
Feather: Whoo! Let's go! And once we're done with that, how about a thousand push-ups?
Vyrn: Leave me outta your crazy training program!
(Captain)! Quit laughing and get these two weirdos away from me!
Feather and Aliza's love of their respective arts seems to have miraculously restored their depleted stamina.
Watching them train until the cows come home is one thing, but participating is quite another... as Vyrn is about to discover.
